Re: wont heat

The sensor may need to be reset. My felt filter had come off but the dryer worked fine until everything filled with lint. Much of the lint was in places you can't get to easily and Fisher Pykel doesn't mention cleaning these areas in their manuals. I know it is to late to help you but it may help someone in the future.

My Bosch Nexxt 500 dryer keeps tripping the hi-limit cut out.

Try checking your exhaust vent pipe for excessive bends and kinks, make sure there is good strong airflow coming out the exhaust where it exits the building.

Dried a load fine, next load tumbles wont dry. still cant get heat


Make sure front of dryer is not blocked, air flow is needed to dry.Check that the lint filter and exhaust duct is clean.

Check the blown fuses and home’s circuit breaker tripped. Dryer use 2 household Fuses or a circuit breakers, If one is blown, the dryer may still operate but not heat. Alternatively, the dryer may heat, but it may not heat up as hot as it should. Replace the Fuses or reset the circuit breaker.

Another common cause of a dryer failing to heat is a faulty Heating Element. You will need to replace it.

Good Luck and have a nice day.
Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

I have a kenmore 76712. clothes only gets warm but does not dry even after 3 cycles. I have looked in the back cabinet and i see the ignition working and lighting up. But it goes off after about 5-8 secs...

The unit must be taken apart to clean. Also the duct work (vent tube) will have to come completely apart for those tubes will be solid full of lint as well. That is why the dryer is not drying your clothes. I guarantee you will find a handfull of lint for every foot of tubing you have. OInce cleaned the dryer will operate like new again

Lint not catching in tray and is clogging the roof vent

This is common on all dryers. Not lint screen will catch all the lint although some are better than others. If you haven't already, you will need to clean or have your home vent cleaned (with a brush that goes all the way through the vent). If vent is not cleaned the lint will back up all the way into your dryer and cause a mess. You have stated your vent goes up to your roof so you will need to clean it every 6mths to 1yr. Aside from this there is no fix that I am aware of. Please rate me after reading this.
